Moving data

I want to move Peachtree data from a local drive to a network drive. What is the process for this. I tried it already but Peachtree would not open. The network drive is a shared data drive on a server which
the client PC was connected to.
TIA

Then you must install Peachtree on the server, choosing to install the Server components only. You should probably then uninstall it from the workstation and reinstall it to the mapped drive where the data resides. Do not include the actual company data file folder in the path. For example, if you create the P drive, mapped to C:\program files\sage software\peachtree, then you would show the install data path as P:\Company.

FYI This will only work if you are using a Windows server. Peachtree no longer supports shared folders on Non-Windows servers.

ELS had written this in response to http://www.rockryno.com/peachtree/Re-Moving-data-729-.htm : We did a similar move last year. Our data server is running xp. We first backed up our peachtree data from the old computer that was being used to store the data using the backup option that is integrated in Peachtree. Then we installed peachtree onto the server using the data server only option. Then I reinstalled Peachtree onto our workstations, mapped to the data server drive and then did a data restore to get our real data back up and running. Had no problems at all with the process even though all our other computers that use peachtree are using vista and the data server is xp. Obviously, all your computers should be in the same workgroup to make the mapping easy, but other than that, it should work with no major issues.
